Are those rainy days getting you and the children down? Or perhaps you want the little ones to spend some time inside? Instead of turning on the television consider one of these 25 fun indoor activities!
The best part: the majority of them are FREE! I know how difficult it can be to have so many little ones cooped up inside. Especially, when you have children who love to explore the outdoors, run around and have LOTS of energy to wiggle.
All of these activities my little ones and I have done (and they love them!) I hope yours do as well.
25 Fun Indoor Activities for Children
- Build a fort in the living room.
